Telecom giant Ooredoo Maldives has launched wireless broadband internet connection under the name “Faseyha Home Broadband” across the Maldives.

Ooredoo stated on Sunday that, upon receiving its official license to provide internet services, the company’s main target was to provide high speed broadband internet to all regions of the archipelago.

The company’s CEO Najib Khan declared the launching of Ooredoo’s home broadband across the island nation has brought the company closer to realizing its dream of digitalizing the Maldives.

Ooredoo announced that customers can now apply for Faseyha Home Broadband services, which are offered at the most economic rates available on the market, at Ooredoo’s Experience Centres established across the Maldives. Upon application, Ooredoo will supply customers with routers that are already set up and activated.

Ooredoo has introduced three different packages for their home broadband services with speeds up to 10 Mbps.

50 GB package – MVR 699 per month

120 GB package – MVR 1,099 per month

180 GB package – MVR 1,549 per month

According to Ooredoo, customers will continue to receive internet services at lower speeds even if they use up their data allowances. Customers may also opt for boosters to increase their data allowances. Ooredoo offers home boosters of 7 GB for MVR 100.
